Big wreck I-10 WB on Spillway


Saw it on my way in to New Orleans this morning, thought I saw 3 cars crumpled up and up in flames, even ignited the grass underneath the bridge.

Prayers sent and all that jazz.

Just showed it on the news. Both lanes are closed, but are directing around the left lane. Very slow moving.

Saw it going east bound this morning. Sad to hear. Not sure why it delayed me by 40 minutes this morning but...

Both lanes on the spillway were closed as the tow truck was getting the vehicles but WWL just reported that the left lane is now open.

WWL just showed a live shot. All lanes are closed. It looks like some workers may be mopping the roadway. Fuel spill?

Both cars have been brought to the Shell truck stop at the corner of 10 and 51. State troopers have moved trucks from the corner of the parking lot and the charred cars are now surrounded by fire trucks and trooper vehicles.

From the looks of the cars there is no way in hell anyone survived unless they got out immediately.

Had to have been considering the size of the fire after impact. I passed it seconds after it happened, no way I would have been able to get over there and help though. Airline is still pretty clear to and from NOLA btw, I just came back towards BR using that to hwy 51, then back up to 10.

It seems that fuel probably set both cars off that are here at the Shell station. One car looks like a smashed coke can from the back to the driver seat and the second car they brought in(looks like a yaris) obviously leaked fuel because there is fuel all over the bed of the tow truck.
